Living Arrows

Living Arrows

I trust you all have a fabulous Christmas? We have been incredibly busy and I am very thankful I have this week off work! I have spent most of the last week in the kitchen which has been wonderful. The children have had the most brilliant time. Arthur, while not really getting what’s going on, has enjoyed eating mince pies for breakfast (yes, I’m a bad parent, but there’s fruit in there, right? Also – it’s Christmas!) and has really enjoyed his new toy dumpster truck and all the millions of trains he received. Betsy has loved Christmas and everything it involves, four really is the perfect age for Christmas, isn’t it? It all seems so magical.

And that’s the last Living Arrows for the year! Doesn’t time fly? It’s so nice to see these little portraits of Arthur and Betsy every week. Can’t wait to continue this project in 2016!

      I wish it was my fireplace! Alas, it belongs to my brother-in-law. It’s gorgeous, isn’t it?

    Love Betsy’s outfit/costume. Very regal. N would eat mince pies all day given the chance.
